I Liked It Better When It Sucked: The patches take away iconic aspects of the game while doing nothing to actually improve it. The AI cars now move, but don't cross the finish line, and "YOU'RE WINNER" is replaced with "YOU WIN!"
Memetic Loser: The opponent truck. You literally cannot lose to it. Ever. Even if you crash the game. Oh, you installed the patch to make it move? It will still stop short of the finish line. At least Glass Joetries to win.
So Bad, It's Good: So awful it's almost too funny to be in the horrible section. The game pioneered innovative gameplay features such as an opponent who never moved (if you get the patch he moves very slowly but never crosses the finish line), the ability to randomly go through scenery (or fall through the level), a track that crashed the game when loaded, the ability to accelerate backwards infinitely, climb the steepest mountains with almost no loss of speed and go outside the level's boundary. As a result, the game's ending sequence◊ is easily the best part of the game. The GameFAQs board is a joke board devoted solely to BEING WINNER and declaring this game WINNERnote It's also an Ascended Meme of sorts because the site itself uses the "YOU'RE WINNER" splash image whenever the site is taken down for maintenance! Even The Angry Video Game Nerd himself thinks that having a game that essentially has no rules like Big Rigs is ridiculously fun.
